I understand the UT Board of Regents are meeting today and tomorrow in Austin where they will be considering UTB's upcoming budget. Does anyone have any details on that? I understand there is a request for an increase in salaries. Why is it our newspaper here won't cover stuff like that?

Here's a story of what the El Paso Times did in covering UTEP's budget information. It'd be nice if the Herald did the same thing to keep us informed.

Thanks to the person that provided the link to the El Paso Times' report on UTEP's budget information. The Brownsville Herald and UTB/TSC will continue to be a laughing joke for years to come until both decide to acquire real leaders.
